The young turks have recently reported that a young college girl at duke has been doing pornography on the side to help pay for her college expenses. Needless to say, some of her classmates found out, and bullied her over it. Even going to the extent of calling her a whore, and releasing public information like how to find her and etc. Here's a link to the video for more information on the topic:
Assuming you watched the video, what are your thoughts on this?
Sad and appalling. It's none of their business how this young lady is trying to better her life by funding her way through college. What counts is that she is trying to better life. College is damn expensive, and not everyone is born with dads and moms who can afford to send their kids off to college.
Is she harming these other kids by what she is doing? Not really. Is it an accepted way to fund your way through college? Not really, but who am I to judge? I am not her, not in her situation, and definitely have not walked a mile in her shoes. But there would be nothing to pat myself on the back for making another person feel like crap. If they feel good and proud about making someone else feel like garbage, perhaps they should take a deeper look at themselves and see that it is they who really have the problem.
The guy in the video got it right - everyone is wrong.
The "bullies" are idiots
The self-righteous finger pointers are idiots.
The girl thinking being a porn "star" is acceptable and "empowering" is an idiot.
And folks that think working in the porn trade is acceptable and harms no one are idiots too.
Is this where we are - there is no moral baseline, re: being a porn star is "empowering" is good? No personal responsibility, re: giving out the girl's address?
Yep, we humans are like a basket full of surprise bags - turds and diamonds all in the same lot.

Going through college a virgin...How logical does this sound?????I realize that many people in my generation are sexually plagued and hence seldom find celibacy until marriage as practical. Especially when you're a man.

Have you ever gone hungry so your kids could be full? Have you ever had to turn the power back on yourself? Have you ever had to go to St. Vincent De Paul for diapers? How poor have you been and why?
